Likely motion for voice vote for McCain by acclamation!

No question in my mind that there will not be a roll call vote state by state.

Instead the Republicans will follow the Democrats example and call for suspension of the procedural rules to allow for a voice vote for McCain by acclamation.

No way will they risk having McCain fall short of the number of votes he needs for the nomination.

There will be a call for the AYEs and no call for the nays!

The AYEs will have it according to the speaker and that will be that!

I wish it were otherwise but if you think they will tolerate a chance for McCain to come up short, think again.

The same Fed Reserve System bankers who manipulated the main stream media to bury and black out Ron Paul will exert their influence at the convention to shut Ron Paul supporters out.

Sad to anticipate but that is what I predict will happen. I hope that our side will figure out an overwhelming response to keep our dream alive.

If they try to

pull a fast one on us. Every Paul delegate should be booing as loud as humanly possible, and a delegate closest to the stage should throw a chair up at the podium. (Not to hit or hurt anyone, but to get the television cameras attention!) Keep up the booing, have someone move to nominate Paul by acclimation, have someone ready to second it, then erupt into YAY's! :-)

Here I think is a simple, yet very effective plan if it does come down to a vote by acclamation...

TURN YOUR BACKS, AND BOOOO. I would say "ney," because it sounds alot like "yeh!"

TURN YOUR BACKS, AND BOO AS LOUD AS POSSIBLE.

Sorry for the caps, but this is a great post and obviously very important. Great job recognizing the voice vote acclamation from the DNC.

Spread the word....is there any other better way to prevent this from happening?

SPREAD THE WORD

Turn around, and boo.

Or just don't show up....but I think if that happens, they will find a way to fill the floor and somehow pull off a vote by acclamation with non-delegates.

If it comes down to a vote by acclamation, the delegates must turn their backs, and boo.

That would not be an acclamation. The old media will not be able to say the convention is united. A real vote MUST happen. Procedures MUST be known to prevent this. It's time to do our Constitutional homework.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

>>>>to prevent nomination by

>>>>to prevent nomination by acclamation

If it does come down to this, simply booooooooooooooooooo. An acclamation is a voice vote. Boo as loud as is humanly possible.

Hopefully, procedures will be in place to prevent such a farce from happening.

Here's another idea for the delegates.....don't show up.

It's great to think outside of the box, but sometime the simple things work best. Keep it simple, and our message will be clear.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

is before the convention. Hmmm I wonder if this is going to be to prep the delegates with a mini course on how to make sure they get control of the floor and use proper procedure to ensure he's nominated???

I just emailed my brother,

who is a delegate to warn him of this.There must be a way to stop this!

That's a mistake

There will probably be Aye's, but they would betray how unenthusiastic McCain voters are. People vote for McCain as a compromise, not necessarily FOR him.

Defend Liberty!

What to do

My husband,who will be there as a Delegate says, the key words from the Chair are "without objection" which needs a loud response of "NAY" and "DIVISION OF THE HOUSE", or just plain "division".

It is important to keep in

It is important to keep in mind that we are all planning for the worse. Don't be discouraged because you may think that McCain's nomination is set it stone, which it certainly isn't. Remember how everyone was trying to guess who his v.p. would be, and it turned out it was someone from way out in left field. We can and worry or we can do something about. Knowing what we accomplished in the past year I'm convinced we will do the latter. The sky is not falling, we are just as smart and dedicated (if not more) as our opponents and we will prevail. Just keep on keepin' on and we'll be fine.

as usual

they will do anything to get their way. Masters of lies and deceit.

Ca'nt everyone at least

Yell NAY!!!!!! as loud as possible to make a statement even though it will probably be ignored? You want to behave but do'nt sit there like door mats either. Got to at least make a strong point if they do that. Stir up the dog and pony show. It should be live on TV. Hold up nay signs! Booo! Be heard. can you take a bull horn? Something loud? No must be heard even if it's only from our delegates. Drown out that gavel!

I checked the weather

High chance of thunder storms. Maybe lighting will strike at just the right moment.

Then everyone there needs to start yelling "roll call" at the top of their lungs.

I have just started getting

I have just started getting involved with the local GOP in trying to take the party back. If they do this role call vote and hustle McWar into the nomination without even a fair hearing from the people, I am afraid that will push me into the column of those who believe the corruption is so severe that there is no longer even a chance of reforming the party. If that happens, Constitution Party, here I come!

Pat

BOHICA!!

And that is exactly what

And that is exactly what they want you to do. Go to the CP or LP where you become benign and they can continue their BS unopposed.

The only way to turn things around is to seize the reins from those in power. The CP or the LP is not in power and it will do you or us no good to go there because we are mad at the big bad nasty Republicans. The GOP and DNC are the ones in power and that is where we must concentrate our efforts if we want a real shot at changing it peacefully.

Of course it is always possible that some event could happen to shift the balance of power to a 3rd party or cause a new party to be formed and take power. However it is unlikely and even if it were we cannot count on it and must work as if it all depends on us because it does!

I do not think it is so easy

I do not think it is so easy when they hold all the cards!! You're very likely correct as to a 3rd party being a benign choice but I have a strong suspicion the "R"'s are corrupt beyond repair. They hold the reigns. When we take back the party locally what will we do when the state level cuts off our funds because we are not doing their bidding? Don't even accuse me of not doing my part, I have become a PCO as we speak and am responsible for many getting signed up in my county, yet I am dubious. Wake a few existing "R"'s to Ron Paul? Sure and that is always golden, but seize their reins? Somehow I believe we have to create our own "reigns"...

Raspberries

I like the whoopie cushion idea which led me to suggest blowing raspberries (Like in The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Olde London Town). What about just 'baah-ing' like sheep. "Barrrrh, Barrrrh, barrrh,barrh bah, etc. When the 'Ayes are voting? (And shouting "Noooooooo, nooooo"

No need to bother with such small things as ...

rules and laws when a national tragedy is upon us.

Just cancel the convention and annoint McCain.

Better yet, just have the delegates mail in their choice, it will save a lot of money and the delegates can be urged to donate those savings to the future victims of gustov.

LOL

WAHOR!!

Does anyone know if our delegates are going to meet ...

before the Convention to make plans so they are all on the same page?

Will they be allowed into the Convention hall with Ron Paul signs?

Are they aware that the DVDs4Delegates project has mailed the DVD#1 and #2 to all the delegates including themselves? Are they encouraging the delegates to watch the DVDs?

We never did get the names and addresses of the delegates from Puerto Rico. If you give your DVD to a Puerto Rican delegate I am sure the DVD project will be glad to arrange to send you another one.

Use the return address on the envelope your DVD came in!

Wish I were able to be there. All of America will be watching!

"I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine" Ayn Rand in Atlas Shrugged p731

No Man's need constitutes an obligation on the part of another man to fulfill that need.

Did the delegates

get the DVDs? I still have'nt seen the finished product. Is there a link where I can watch it? Last I saw it was still messed up 1/3 the way through.

Delegates started receiving DVD 2 yesterday (or before)

I know that I got mine yesterday. It came in a very official looking mailer which made some of the Virginia delegates mad. It made them think that it was something from the convention, even though it was carefully labeled.

we should follow

the example of our Founding Fathers and PRAY for help and guidance!!!

that...

may come later. if it does i will rely on God's help there too!!! Have we all asked God for help yet?

Ron Paul "Sign Wave Across the USA" -- November 5th!

Lent's been over since March...

glad to have you back!

yes this is good!

I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth -- that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings that "except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall be become a reproach and a bye word down to future age. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing Governments by Human Wisdom, and leave it to chance, war, and conquest.

Yup

I'm afraid that may well be the case. But if he selects a pro-choice/abortion candidate, there may be a lot of upset, not only from Ron Paul supporters.
Other than the Democrats though, Ron Paul has not even be invited to speak and this will come and bit them. Our support is at least 15% of the GOP and the GOP can impossibly win without it. McCain thinks he can offset this loss with say 10-25% of the Hillary CLinton supporters, but I am afraid this is not going to help him.

Can the delegates take

Can the delegates take cardboard loud horn as to direct the na's to the direction best suited ???????
